Book Description

- The second and the final part of the series which collects various primary-source materials selected from contemporary publications and historical documents related to the phenomenon of ‘the Yellow Peril’, which contributed to the consolidation of Western consciousness by invoking the menace of an awakening or aggressive Asia—China and Japan in particular—and the consequent decline of the West, racially, culturally, and militarily.

- Following the first series which included facsimile reprints of nine popular works of fiction related to the Yellow Peril, the second series includes a total of forty historical documents, essays, and articles selected from contemporary publications.

- The authors included are not only journalists or diplomats critical to Asian aggressiveness, but also writers like G. K. Chesterton and leading Japanologist scholars like B. H. Chamberlain and E. Bruce Mitford, as well as Kencho Suematz, a Japanese diplomat who corresponded with his Western counterpart.

- Together with Series I, it provides an excellent overview on the cultural and historical relationship between the West and Asia.
